Zwave lock battery level indicator on Field Checkbox - kfly - 09-06-2019

Dean,
My CQC Z-wave is working great so thanks..
Question: I currently have Z-wave locks(Field Check box button)  that use a True/False overlay to go between Green and Red. I wanted to add an Orange overlay to the Button when the battery of the Z-wave lock falls below 10%.
Any suggestion with what is the best way to accomplish this.  (Field Check box with 3 state overlay based on a field value).

Thanks
Kevin

The Logic Server is the likely best best, to set up a boolean field that reflects the state you want.

Thanks Dean.Went the lazy way and will display a red battery icon with a  "field boolean image" when battery is below 10 percent.
Thanks again
Kevin

Nice! From a UI perspective that conveys a clearer message that there is a low battery than someone having to remember that Orange = low battery.

Thanks Batwater. Agree, I am going to tell my wife it is a feature....
